Daxhaus in Neumarkt an der Raab

Daxhaus in Neumarkt an der Raab, Austria

This  building named after the family Dax which used to live here is made of mud and roofed with a thatch. After founding a kind of artist in residence program in Neumarkt an der Raab (Künstlerdorf) it started to be the first studio for the artists.

Since then a lot of famous writers and artists used to work here. Personally I was impressed to hear that Peter Handke, H.C. Artmann, Gerhard Roth, Peter Turrini and Ernst Jandl used to write here.
